GFN-131072 Mega Prime!

PrimeGrid - So, 23.09.2017 - 14:28
On 14 September 2017, 23:21:44 UTC, PrimeGrid’s Generalized Fermat Prime Search found the Generalized Fermat mega prime: 47179704^131072+1 The prime is 1,005,815 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 26th for Generalized Fermat primes and 250th overall. The discovery was made by Andrei Okhrimouk (AndreiO) of Australia using an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960 series GPU in an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU at 2.80GHz with 4GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional Edition. This GPU took about 21 minutes to probable prime (PRP) test with GeneferOCL2. The PRP was confirmed prime by an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz with 16GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Edition. This computer took about 2 hours 42 minutes to complete the primality test using multithreaded LLR. For more details, please see the official announcement.

Collatz: Search finished

yoyo@home - So, 23.09.2017 - 00:00
After less than one and a half months (14 August to 23 September), we were able to successfully complete our search project: We have found all the smaller path records as well as all starting numbers 2 * 1016 * starting number (only such numbers are given as candidates) which were found by other persons (mainly Tomas Olivera e Silva and Eric Roosendaal); and thus validate our approach in the opposite direction. We have found 4 new path records and have been able to prove that all starting numbers

PRPNet September Challenge

PrimeGrid - Pi, 22.09.2017 - 15:12
Factorial Equinox Challenge The equinoxes are the only times when the solar terminator (the "edge" between night and day) is perpendicular to the equator. As a result, the northern and southern hemispheres are equally illuminated. The Latinate names vernal equinox (spring) and autumnal equinox (fall) are often used. To celebrate we're running a PRPNet challenge at the FPS (factorial prime search) from 22nd 12:00 UTC until 27th of September 12:00 UTC. To take part, you have to activate the following line in prpclient.ini: Stats will be available at the well known place here. All previous PRPNet challenge stats can be found here. Discussion and more information can be found here: 2017 PRPNet September Challenge. Good luck!

Arecibo Status

SETI@Home - Št, 21.09.2017 - 19:11
I've been asked by several people to post a status update on the situation at Arecibo following hurricane Maria's passage.

Unfortunately, at this point we haven't gotten any news. The last information we have is from a couple hours prior to when the eye passed Arecibo. That report said all the employees were accounted for and in sheltered buildings.

Since then we've had no news. That's understandable. With power out on the whole island, electronics communications aren't going to be possible for some time. Heavy rains are still expected today, so I'm sure that the primary concern is still keeping everyone safe. Assessment of any damage will take time.

Let's hope that everyone is safe, that their homes are intact, and that any damage can be repaired quickly.

Possible systems failures

LHC@home - Ut, 19.09.2017 - 00:00
We seem to be in the early stages of a system failure for several sub-projects. The proxy server has flatlined and my running jobs monitor is dipping alarmingly. Please check if you are getting tasks flagged as computing failures, and set No New Tasks if so.
[Edit] On closer inspection, it may just be the CMS app. [/Edit]
Obviously I'll apologise if this is a false alarm, but it's the wrong time of day to expect a prompt response from the CERN admins.

Bad Runs Over the Weekend

Milkyway@Home - Po, 18.09.2017 - 16:07
Hey Everyone,

Sorry about the errors over the weekend. I put up a set of runs that, while tested locally, still seemed to error on the server. The runs are now taken down and should filter out of the queue over the next 24 hours, going to look into it now.

Sorry again,

FTNBK broken

Enigma@Home - So, 16.09.2017 - 00:34
The 101 letters long FTNBK message was broken.
Please abort all m3_ftnbk* / g3_ftnbk* workunits as they're not needed anymore.

There might be a short break in WU availability as I have to clean up batches that are not needed anymore and prepare new ones.

More info will be posted here:

We Need Your Help!

PrimeGrid - Pi, 15.09.2017 - 22:40
In the past, donations were nice to have, but not critical to our operation. As you likely already know, RackSpace is ending our free hosting. While all of the PrimeGrid admins volunteer their effort, equipment, and electricity, as do all of its members, PrimeGrid needs to find and afford a home. In choosing a path forward, we have considered both current and ongoing costs, as well as maintaining quality of service at the levels to which we've become accustomed. In doing so, the best option for PrimeGrid is to purchase servers and house them at a paid colocation service. Moving forward, PrimeGrid needs to cover the 3,500 euro cost of the initial hardware purchase, and then needs to start covering the costs of colocation. Ultimately, we will need to plan for hardware lifecycle as well. We are quite appreciative of the donations we have received towards this effort, and you can see our progress here: where it quickly becomes evident that we still have a ways to go. Your contributions are greatly appreciated and will help keep PrimeGrid strong and viable in the years ahead. We have done a lot of great work here, and hope to ensure its continued success.
